Cairo, A meeting will be held at the

headquarters of the Arab League tomorrow (Wednesday) to launch the

digital map of Arab libraries and information centers.

The Arab League pointed out that this meeting comes within the

framework of the keen attention given by the Secretariat General of the

Arab League to upgrading the field of libraries and information as

libraries and information centers are an important source of history and

a measure of the urbanization of nations and peoples.

The project is the first non-profit Arab project to enhance the

geographic information awareness of Arab libraries and information

centers. It aims to provide an Arab index for Arab libraries and

information centers that monitors their reality and provides information

supporting strategic planning processes.
